Showcasing the Elevated Arts Schools- Van Buren Middle School

The Van Buren Falcons celebrate student success every day! They believe that community engagement and recognizing student effort will stimulate student success in school and life.

The Van Buren Falcons are celebrating Falcon Pride and student success each day at school.  Principal Danielle Calvillo and her staff believe that community engagement and recognizing students will re-engage the learning and excitement of in-person learning.  The school has a renewed focus of career readiness through AVID strategies.  A new student Leadership Team is encouraging and supporting students.  The staff is focused on the collection and analysis of instructional data to design engaging and stimulating lessons.  Students continue to develop their technology skills. Teachers are sharing their areas of expertise with one another and strengthening the school culture. 

As a community school, Van Buren continues to actively create its community garden and anticipates the time when families can again participate in the community garden.  New community partnerships will soon develop.  Any Given Child Albuquerque will support the community garden and ways to enhance school culture through the arts, along with the APS fine Arts Department and school staff.
